Spiddal property 500 acre at the base of Tamborine Mountain. Spiddal was originally settled by Michael and Anne Yore (nee Ryan) in 1865. Both Michael and Anne migrated from Ireland as a result of the potato famine and uprising at that time. Anne sailed on the Erin-Go-Bragh (Ireland forever) in 1862 and Michael on the Fiery Starin 1863. On Michael's death in 1912 the farm passed to the youngest son Andrew Thomas who died at a young age of 33 in 1916. The Spiddal property was then held intrust until his son Thomas Patrick (TP) became of age in 1935. In 1966 TP transferred title of the property to the present owner Thomas John (TJ). Tom's son Denis 5th generation resides on the property and assists with the running of the farm. From settlement in 1865 the farm has been used for Primary production mainly dairy, pigs, hay and grain activities. After dairying ceased in 1970 the property has been producing beef cattle, turf and hay. The original inhabitors occupying the Tamborine area were the Wangerriburra Native tribe. They lived in peace with all the tribes adjacent to their own area. More importantly they were prepared to be friendly to the white man in the early stages of development, with respect shown by all. After continuing contact with the white man the tribe became commonly known as the Albert tribe.

Nice grassed, freshly mown camp-site by the river. Tom was very helpful when driving in directing us to the camp-site. There were three groups but this wasn't a problem because they were very spread out. Close to lots of hikes and places to go for a meal. We had an enjoyable Easter with family and friends.

Nice place to stay & relatively private. Thomas was friendly & helpful but also gave us space to enjoy. Only real issue is the river access can be quite difficult.

Nice spot, easy to get to.
Well maintained area with good clear camping areas on the high side of the creek, If your able to get down closer to the water it saves the walk up the hill and you'll get a bit of shade as there's none on top. This would be weather/vehicle dependant but very good it you can. Nice creek for the kids and dog to have a swim (To cold for me). Thanks heaps will be back. Geoff & Tracey.

Great location, friendly host
Lovely spot, lots of space, great river frontage. Close to everything, very convenient location. Tom the host was very friendly and helpful. My only tip would be to take a full size shovel to move the cow poop before you set up.
